Cyberspace is no place for the real world
Plastic minds got no soul
Man made stars in the sky will they find me
Faceless world dips so low
Oh No...

Android faces confined to a blank screen
Mankind stands in their way
Sleepless dreams fill my days can they save me
Mindless robots we'll slave
Lost in the electric Sleep...

Look at the lights and tell me what you're gonna find
Nothing but the circuits behind
Looks in the lights and tell me where should I begin
Where's the part that makes it all spin?

Look at her eyes and tell me what you're gonna find
See the sould that proves you're not blind
Look in her eyes and show me the timelessness of love
Sleeping in the darkness above

Cyberspace is no place for the real world
Plastic minds got no soul
Electric hearts beat in time on the last day
They can't see any way

    General Commentahhh, this is a great song.. sounds so sabbathy.
    i do believe it is about the mind numbing world of computers, and spending time in front of them.
    perhaps a warning of the effect this technology has had/having on the world.

    General CommentStream is correct about the meaning. It does, in fact, sound so Sabbathy, that it has been mistaken for a Black Sabbath song on many occasions.

    General CommentOf course, if you stop to think about it, if it was Sabbath, this was their style circa 1970. Which would make lyrics referencing the internet seem awfully prescient.
